Make voting day a Christmas shopping day and support a cause that has touched us all.

It’s been a long time coming, but the North Arm Cove Stitch Gatherers can now announce with great pleasure that a “Christmas Cheer” community fundraiser will be held on voting day, December 4 at the North Arm Cove community hall, from 8.30am to 1.30pm. This event replaces the Biggest Morning Tea cancelled in 2020 and again in May this year.

With all proceeds going to the NSW Cancer Council, the Stitch Gatherers will be...

Sadly, there will be no "Christmas in May" Biggest Morning Tea in May this year. Due to the Coronavirus risk and the ever changing government regulations regarding the number of people who can attend social functions, the Stitch Gatherers group unanimously decided to cancel the event.

The group also considered the fact that many visitors to the Biggest Morning Tea are 60+ which is the age group at highest risk.

The event will be back even bigger and better in 2021 and the theme will still be "Christmas in May".

Anyone who was...

Despite a rainy, overcast morning, just on 60 people attended the North Arm Stitch Gatherers Biggest Morning Tea on Saturday 4 May.

The sale tables were the first stop for many, where a variety of hand crafted and donated goods were on display. Sales were brisk, adding $600 to the final total. The major raffle, a hand made bed throw and matching cushions donated by Joan Williams was also sold out, providing another $500. Total raised so far is a whopping $2,300.

Over 20 people went home happily clutching raffle prizes...

The residents of North Arm Cove and surrounding areas have once again proved they can punch above their weight when it comes to fund raising, with a total of $2,050 raised at the recent Biggest Morning Tea.

Around 70 guests enjoyed a traditional Devonshire Tea and browsed the sale tables. There were so many fine entries in the Lavender and Lace craft competition that the Judges had a pretty tough time deciding on the six winners. They were Cheryl Fleming from Karuah, who won in two categories, Kay Furley, Annette Searle, also from Karuah, Joan...

Although attendance was down a little on previous years, the North Arm Cove Biggest Morning Tea still managed to raise $1,700 for the Cancer Council. The Stitch Gatherers group were delighted with the result, attributing the slightly lower numbers to the fact that many residents were absent from the Cove on the day.

The decision to feature coat hangers, cushions and doorstops was a great success and the entries were so many and varied that judges Emma, Joanne and Shawna asked for more prizes to be awarded. Competition winners came from both the North...

That's the theme of this year's Biggest Morning Tea where you will be presented with an amazing array of hand crafted coathangers, cushions and doorstops.

Last year the Teddy Bear’s Picnic raised over $2,000 and a good proportion of that amount was from the sale of hand crafted bears and dolls. So this year, the Stitch Gatherers group decided to come up with some items that would not only be saleable, but useful around the home.

As usual, there will be prizes for the best hand crafted items, which can be made...
